  1. 19 by a doctor in Jerusalem. I was doing study abroad and a faculty member noticed I kept squinting and was having trouble reading and sent me to his eye doctor to have my eyes looked at.

  2. I was 18 and trying to get into the Military. Pasted all the tests except the eye exam. It is one eye disorder they will not let you in the army with.

  3. I'm in the 1.9% and find it a bit concerning that my former optometrist did not detect it sooner and refer me to a ophthalmologist. He detected thinning of the cornea, but did not discuss Keratoconus.

  4. I was 38, and had just received prescription for new eyeglasses. When I received the eyeglasses about 2 weeks after the exam, I still was having trouble seeing and I took the glasses back to the optician. They verified that the prescription was filled correctly, and told be to go back to the optometrist. The optometrist found that my eyes had actually changed due to what was suspected to be cornea change. She sent me to a contact lens fitter to be seen for keratoconus. He scanned the cornea with the topography instrument, and that was that, it showed the corneal steepening, etc.
